Alan Pardew is confident Newcastle United fans are now buying into Mike Ashley's transfer policy.
Pardew admits they may sell again this summer, but replacements will be found - just as they were when Andy Carroll was sold to Liverpool.
He told the Sunday Mirror: “Now I think a lot of Newcastle fans are starting to see the bigger picture and appreciate what we are doing makes sense. We set out to find value in the transfer market and I believe we have succeeded.
“And I have been helped by the fact that the backroom staff I inherited are first-class.
“We have proved this season by breaking into the top six that we can be a force in the Premier League and we have laid foundations that I hope can keep us at the top end of the table in future years.”
